Upgrade to Single Sign-On Authentication for Office 365

Posted: 10:53:37, Monday, Oct 2, 2017   Expiration: 10:53:37, Tuesday, Oct 9, 2018  

At 12:01am on Sunday, October 8, 2017, ICT will perform an enhancement to NMSU's Office 365 suite (e.g. email, OneDrive, Sharepoint).   ICT will be enabling single sign-on authentication for the Office 365 suite. This enhancement should take approximately two hours to complete.
  • You will notice that when you visit applications such as Office 365, mail, and learn you will be directed to the myNMSU login page. 
  • This will allow you to sign into any participating application by being directed to myNMSU to login and seamlessly navigate between the other applications without having to log in again.  ICT will continue to expand this service to other NMSU systems.
  • After feedback from the NMSU community single sign-off will be disabled. This is to avoid systems being unintentionally closed, such as in the middle of an online exam.  
ICT has tested the enhancement in the test environments and no issues were encountered. 
After the upgrade if you discover any issues, please contact the help desk at help@nmsu.edu or 575-646-1840.  As always you are welcome to email me directly at norma@nmsu.edu with any questions or concerns.
